The Write Stuff

Filed under: New Competitions,Writing Opportunities — Gina @ 11:31

Hello lovely peoples. I’ve added a few more links and competitions but realised today that’s not very helpful if I don’t tell you about them so here we go:

I know it’s last minute but BA are running a comp for a short film about the 2012 Olympics. The closing date is 27th July, but you only need to come up with your idea by then, not the whole script so you’ve got a whole week’s thinking time so GO HERE FAST.

Words with Jam, an on-line writing magazine, are running a competition for comedy scenes in any format – script, novel extract, short story, play etc. Word limit – 1000, plus 40 word max synopsis to introduce the scenario (optional).

1st Prize – £200 (plus publication in Words with JAM) Five runners-up of £25 each (plus publication on the Words with JAM Blog) Word Limit:Up to 1000, plus 40 word max synopsis to introduce the scenario (optional) Entry Fee: £5, plus £3 per entry thereafter. Closing date is 19th August.

Applications are now open for the The Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Young Writers’ Programme 2011. This introduces writers aged 16 to 25 to playwriting as a unique, imaginative and invaluable way to express themselves creatively. They aim to open up theatre to the most innovative, original and exciting new voices, to create a new generation of Liverpool writers who will challenge and engage nationwide audiences. Closing date 19th August.

I found another great page on the London Comedy Writers website with ideas for where to send your script. It has pages for film, TV, radio and stage so you’ve got no excuse for sitting on that masterpiece. Speaking of undiscovered masterpieces I sent my radio play to Celador Productions who accept unsolicited radio scripts so I need lots of positive thoughts sent that way please.

That should keep you all busy for a while. X
